and the other half is a bunch of whiny selfish jackwagons who care nothing for anyone else and will do ANYTHING to screw others over.
I am sorry you feel that way, however, that is not what Blizzard has laid down as the LFD loot rules. If we were to follow every "player made rule" that people could come up with there'd be chaos.
No flying mounts.
All servers flagged as pvp.
Gear and raids for the "elite few"
People being ordered to beg
permission to get equipment they need and then required to justify
that need to some stranger who puts themselves as a self appointed arbitrator.
Dungeons restricted to those deemed "worthy" with gear inspections and people thrown out for not being "elite".
Mounts restricted to the "elite" who then parade in SW as they used to do so the "scrubs and bads" could sit there and admire them in their sartorial splendour.
Lets put it another way: Not a chance in hell would I tolerate that kind of self righteous arrogance. I and many others would quit rather than be subjected to the capricious whim of others over our gameplay based on their nebulous "moral code" which would change every single day.
This "do as you are told or I will kick you" is yet another example of players thinking they are judge and jury, and in all truth, I am not so slowly getting sick to death of it.
They are not "your raid" or "your group" it is not "your gear".
Blizzard makes the rules. Not you.
The LFD rules are need before greed, plain and simple.
Abide by that or make your own group.
